Your orange and black car, my green and black car - they were filled with girls and fun as we cruised the lake and enjoyed each other. Thinking of you with love. Linde and some of the OG gals - Susan, Lori, Linda and Beth.

I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too!
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and your pictures in frames.
Your memory is a keepsake from which I will never part.
God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart.  ❤

her Life
Robin was born in Guntersville, Alabama. To Ann Morey Nolan & Victor LaVerne Short.

Robin has 2 sister's,
Kelly Sophinos; Denver, Co
Jodi, who passed away in 2010

She adored her Uncle John.

Robin spent her early years like any other child. She grew up in Ogallala Nebraska and spent time with many friends, enjoying backroad drives & I'm sure all the trouble that little town could offer. 

Robin later went on to start her journey in Colorado, when she gave birth to her three children,
Kenneth Kopicky in 1979 @ 22yrs of age
Kathryn Robertson in 1983 @ 26 years of age
Kylee Watkins in 1988 @ 31 years of age

This was the most important time for Robin, as she selflessly gave everything She had to raise her children & She did a Damn Good Job! 

Robin was extremely proud of her grandchildren:
Allena Campuzano: Sally May, Daughter of Katy 
Tavian Halcomb: Taver, Son of Kylee 
Cameron Kopicky: Cam, Son of Kenny

She spent her time with family & friends and had numerous life adventures.

Robin enjoyed afternoon drives, music, dancing, gardening, all rivers, lakes and oceans but most of all, She cherished all the support & love from her family & friends.

Sisters

Losing a Sister is heartbreaking, losing two in just over a decade leaves me at a loss for words. Robin was the oldest of us three girls. We were each 2 1/2 years apart, making Robin and I spaced far enough to be in different spheres throughout most of our life. I was little when she was just finding her independence and she was leaving home when I was just coming into my own. I remember her babysitting and filling graham crackers (my favorite snack) with ivory soap instead of confectioner’s sugar. Ick! I remember the day she borrowed my hard earned allowance (of $5 per week) to go on a ski trip.
I remember visiting her in Colorado after her son Kenny was born and knowing she felt a love for him I had never experienced until I had sons of my own. I know she loved her three children fiercely. She had so much pride and love for her grandchildren and that was evident in every conversation we had. 
She was the gatekeeper of childhood memories, family tales and photos. She always seemed to have a story and memory of my mom, my grandparents, sister, uncle and cousins and times in our life that would have escaped my memory.
She loved to talk and always knew a little about everything. She would chat for hours if you allowed herthe time. I didn’t always give her that time. I loved her and gave what I could.
Her life wasn’t easy, she struggled for acceptance, struggled for love and she struggled for money. No matter what she went through, she always had faith that God would bring her through and provide the things she needed in her life. I find so much comfort in knowing that she has finally found all that she searched for and I know she and Jodi are dancing on the clouds. 

What a lovely lady

Shared by Leslie Fisher on August 12, 2022
I became friends with Robin about 1975. We laughed together, depended on each other to make it home ok, went to concerts, spent decades trying to figure out men and camped at the lake for 10 days one summer. 
Robin was always a friend to me. Never judgemental, never forgot about me and always cheered me up with her humor and wit. She had a heart of solid gold .  We spent hours on the phone these past 5 years. She was like a best friend and a sister to me. I looked up to her, tried to copy her, adored her. 
I love you Robingreatful you were my dear friend for 48 years.
